What does your sofa say about you? If these portraits are any indication, quite a bit, actually.

Consider Lee Radziwill in Paris, on the phone, cigarette in hand, mid-puff. Note the curve of her chignon and of her sofa, a scroll-back number in salmon silk.

There’s no telling how many yards of chintz the shot has sold, but there’s no doubt about this: The photographer captured something of her essence, and the magic of it will long endure.

Scroll on to see what each sofa has to say about these iconic women.
